Somewhere in amongst my #bestweekendever I got the chance to interview the insightful, hilarious Kate Bolick @k8bolick at the brilliant #AllAboutWomen festival. If you haven’t read her book, Spinster, do: it’s about valuing your experience as an individual, shutting up the haters in your head & centering yourself in the story of your life, which is pretty useful for everyone, I reckon #earnestpost

If you could write a Valentine to a city, which one* would you choose & why? Themagical @vanessaberryworld will be delivering her ode to a city (I wonder which one she'll choose?!) on Tuesday, as part of this awwwwwesome @sydurbanistas event. Beer, ramen & cities: it's the most loveable event of the season. All the details @sydurbanistas

Earnestness alert! Me, trying to explain why I love Louise Paramor's work: hilarious & tragic, like a plastic slapstick shipwreck. Sensual & structured, political & potent, shiny & joyous & toxic. Russian Constructivism executed by a deeply depressed Wall-E. Memphis after the apocalypse. Also, the best bit from Toy Story, which is obviously the spider Meccano with the dolls head. This is almost exactly what the inside of my head looks like.

The most powerfully affecting work in the #NGVTriennal: Incoming, by Richard Mosse, with sound by Ben Frost. Like a thermal-camera Pieta.

Sydney fam, a beautiful exhibition opened tonight, #allthatwecantsee, which my crummy pix can’t do justice to. Artists illustrate the #NauraFiles, incident reports from Australia’s gulags, with heartbreaking work. Works here by Penny Byrne, Janet Lawrence & Abdul Abdullah, lots more in my stories. All the props to organisers & curators @arielleaxel & Daniel New. Go see it this weekend!
